Incorporating elements of landscape, poetry, lanterns, parades, music and fire, the work of community celebration artist Paula Jardine will be presented at the second of three free talks in The Lulu Series: Art in the City 2013 this Thursday, Feb. 21.
Jardine will explore and cultivate cultural forms that celebrate and connect people, the land and natural cycles.
As the co-founder of Vancouver’s Public Dreams Society, she established Trout Lake’s Illuminares Evening Lantern Procession and its fall counterpart, Parade of the Lost Souls, two iconic East Vancouver events.
Jardine will offer a discussion on the theories that have developed through her practice, including the role of celebration arts and culture in environmental conservation, activism and the spiritual life of a community.
Preceding this talk will be a short interactive performance by the Steveston Seniors Drumming Circle. The talk is the second of three events in The Lulu Series. For more information, visit www.richmond.ca/luluseries.
